Blackberry Sour

Bright, tart and refreshing

Blackberry Sour returns to the lineup (previously known as Short Weisse) with the clean, tart acidity of our lactic fermentation process that provides massive refreshment to beer drinkers. Aging the beer on blackberries adds a delicious flavor nuance that’s pure fruity deliciousness. The lightweight can package means you can take this thirst quencher to the beach, fishing or just right to your lawn chair. Smuttynose Sour beers are made with a time consuming two-part fermentation process that happens in both the brewhouse and the fermenter. The first stage takes place in the kettle with a dose of our house lactobacillus, a bacteria that’s a key component in making yogurt and sour cream. The second phase takes place in the fermenter with a German-style hefeweizen yeast. This time consuming process means we can only make limited amounts of Sour beers.
